the headline president obama is not pleased. he speaks about the issue of guns and tries to express his understanding of the cultural divide over the issue of guns. calling it the reality of rural versus urban divide on the issue. he says if you grew up and your dad gave you a hunting rifle when you were 10 and you spent the day with him and your uncles and ta became part of the family tradition you can see why you would be protective of that. he says advocates of gun control have to listen more. he also speaks about the fact that he has been skeet shooting all the time at camp david daying he does that with guests. i think that is new information for a lot of people. the question is have you ever fired a gun before? that's not where he finishes off. he fires off on other topics, as well, expressing his impatience with political enemies of sorts some republicans who he he thinks are unwilling to compromise and with the media that too often goes to the sides and never looks for the middle ground a it addresses them, as well. and he weighs in on the issue of football. he said if he had a
